. this is not the recovery we all wanted but we're on the road. for mitt romney it does take away one of talking points he has been very big on, number of consecutive months that the number has been at 8% or above, that line is gone from his speech. short term positives are there for president obama but long term you look at the historical numbers in terms of unemployment in presidential reelection years and depth of the political challenges are great here. >> heather: i'll ask you more about historically in a moment but the numbers have been called into question. there is actually a huge disconnect between the modest of new jobs report and significant decrease in the unemployment rate. jack welch, he went to as far to suggest that the numbers may be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward.
is to stay longer. >> exactly. and i think when romney and ryan have talked about afghanistan, they've gotten themselves in trouble because they cannot say they want to stay longer. and then the other response, listen to the generals. what if you -- what if you disagree with the generals? are they going to listen to the generals if they want to stay for another ten years? that's unclear. >> the other thing going back to the stylistic element of that question in the debate, i think it's because we didn't actually have a foreign policy debate. we had a debate about u.s. military policy and interceptions in a free country. >> that's a good point. >> interviewed and not interviewed. >> climate change, mexico. >> china. >> brazil, china, india. any of those things. >> i want to hear more from you on foreign policy after we take a quick break. and of battery more emergency workers trust in their maglites: duracell. one reason: duralock power preserve. it locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. guaranteed. so, whether it's 10 years' of life's sunny days... or... the occasional stormy one... tr
.com. what do we know now? mitt romney doesn't know what he's talking about with respect to the deadly consequences of being uninsured. trapped as he wants between contradictory positions on health care, he reiterated his position on current status quo in which the uninshierd end up in emergency rooms. we don't have a setting across this country where if you don't have insurance we just say to you, tough luck, you're going to have to die when you have a heart attack. no. you go to the hospital, get treated, you get treatment and it's paid for. we don't have people that become ill who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance. we know back as governor of massachusetts this was precisely the kind of high cost and haphazard care that romney care was designed to avoid and we also know it just flat isn't true that no one in america dies from being uninsured. in fact, a 2009 study from harvard found that nearly 45,000 deaths each year are tied to the lack of insurance. we know the romney the romney plan would ultimately leave an estimated 72,000 without insurance. and we know
with infrastructure. david, it has to do with mitt romney's brilliant tax reform plan to lower the rates and broaden the base and cap the deductions. we're going to talk about that in the next segment with arthur laffer and jared bernstein. but don't you think there's potential here for a political and economic revolution? and if a pro-growth revolution comes, american entrepreneurs, american small businessmen and women are poised, they are poised to torque up the animal spirits and give this a great lift. i think people in the stock market are missing this, david goldman. >> larry, markets have never been good about predicting elections and discounted them. but the fact is, we have more capital waiting on the sidelines -- >> right. >> -- rearing to go, demanding returns, demanding income than we've ever had before. and we have a world that's hungrier for growth with half the world's population at the cusp of industrialization. so a romney presidency, in my view, would give us one of the great stock market booms in the history. absent that, if we get obama and we get the multitrillion-dollar deficit
am sure that governor romney is going to remind him. >> greta: now to the nation's most famous boss, donald trump. who would he hire for vice-president? we spoke with donald trump earlier tonight. donald, nice it talk to you. >> hi, greta. >> greta: all right. what do you think about last night's debate between the two vice-presidential candidates? >> i thought it was very interesting. i thought they both did a very, very good job. both of them. very different. different styles. different thoughts, different politics. but i thought they were both very effective. >> greta: did you learn anything new, substantively? >> i didn't like where joe biden was blaming the intelligence -- our intelligence groups because that was putting something off on people that i am not sure if that was so necessarily so -- >> greta: or worse, saying he was uninformed in the position to be infield. that's another problem. a rock and a hard plies that one. >> i was surprised that he did that. but i will say, i thought he was very effective. i thought they were both very effective in very different ways. >>
